Mark’s Play Expo in Blackpool Experience – October 2018 Edition (Replay)
I traveled to the UK a weak ahead of the expo together with my wife Elise and spend some time in Manchester, York, Edale and eventually travelled to Blackpool. We met up with Erwin (Custardo) and headed over to the YouTuber’s meetup which sort of had already moved on to a different location than the Norbreck. Met with Stuart (thanks for the Videopac stuff) and Cononesdeloro who immediately asked where Wouter (The Highlander) was. Met up with long time friends Andy and Louise and spend the first day together.
This video shows snippets of the event with me playing some games, interacting with others (other Youtubers), generally having a good time and goofing out. Met a great number of friends again too many to all mention here. You know who you are! I partook in some serious Outrun Arcade competitive racing with Michelle Knight. At the end I give a bit of a commentary on the whole event.
Meeting baby Sarah and hanging out with her parents on the second day was definitely a highlight. As well as having a chat with David Pleasance and getting my book signed.
